Thanks for the reply.  See below for the solution I found.

I did try running in both sh and bash but still got same error.
But I did get mailman to install.  The problem was with the Makefile in 
the misc folder.



There were no packages defined. Does this mean I didn't run configure 
correctly?  I simply commented out the for p loop:

         #for p in $(PACKAGES); \
         #do \
             #gunzip -c $(srcdir)/$$p.tar.gz | (cd $(PKGDIR) ; tar xf -); \
             #(cd $(PKGDIR)/$$p ; umask 02 ; PYTHONPATH=$(PYTHONLIBDIR) 
  $(SETUPCMD)); \

This got mailman installed and looks to be working okay.
